The Pacifist States of The United Expanse is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Duong Van Nguyen with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.884 billion Expanseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of National City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient United Expansean economy, worth a remarkable 4,247 trillion United Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 267,385 United Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Expanse's national animal is the White Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

The United Expanse is ranked 70,536th in the world and 2,543rd in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 162.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
